ATLANTA – Vistakon Division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care announced here at SECO that it will discontinue three of its older Acuvue brands this year.

As of July 1, all 9.1 base curves and 8.4 and 8.8 base curves of parameters -6.50 D to -11.0 D in the Acuvue Brand Contact Lenses will be discontinued, according to a company press release. Products with 8.4 and 8.8 base curves and parameters ranging from -0.50 D to -6.00 D will continue to be available.

All Acuvue Bifocal and Acuvue 2 Colours will be discontinued as of Dec. 31.

“Eye doctors can easily upgrade patients from these older lenses to more popular and innovative brands such as Acuvue Oasys, 1-Day Acuvue Moist and 1-Day Acuvue TruEye,” Vistakon President Dave Brown said in the press release.

Acuvue Brand Contact Lenses were introduced in 1987, according to the release.

“Contact lens wearers continue to embrace innovative new materials, technologies and designs that meet their vision, comfort and lifestyle needs,” Brown said.
